South Carolina Straw Poll

The South Carolina Straw Poll results are starting to come in. The Big Winner? Rudy Giuliani. With the early returns just starting to roll in, he is well ahead of McCain. Romney is well behind. And the big surprise is Duncan Hunter, who apparently has been down here for a week making door to door visits.

Update: With 75% of the precincts in, Rudy is still in the lead and Hunter is second. McCain third, Brownback fourth and Romney fifth. The news is that Giuliani is showing that even with his less than conservative social stances, he can win in the south. Also, those looking for a conservative are going for Hunter and Brownback, rather than Romney. And, to my great chagrine, it doesn't look like Romney's frequent trips to South Carolina have been time well spent.
